Yes, I use Papyrus in Windows to paste the reference numbers into a 
manuscript. Although it's a DOS program it can put these into the Windows 
clipboard. When I'm ready to generate the reference list Papyrus will scan the 
saved file and generate two additional ones; one is the manuscript with the 
Papyrus reference numbers replaced with either numbers or author names 
depending upon the reference style, the second file contains the references 
formatted and ready to be inserted into the first file.

I use Papyrus version 7.0.11a and it does recognize Word for Windows 2 docs. 
Word 6 can save a manuscript in this format
